Pink Bush ID Pls

This is a pretty bush about 10 ft. tall, starting to bloom little pink flowers. I don't think they're fragrant. The leaves are rounded, light green and not shiny. Any ideas?

I agree with Beegood, first pic I would guess is a rosybloom crab of some sort and then a Sumac, not sure which one.
